What’s new in richard

Version 0.2: In development

Features:

  • New API v2! Built on django-rest-framework, it should be simpler, easier, and less buggy. See documentation for API details.
  • Switched to django-configurations. You’ll have to update your settings files, but understanding where settings are coming from should now be much easier.

Backwards-incompatible changes:

  • Ditched API v1. It used tastypie and I jettisoned that.
  • To use API v2, you’ll need to create new API tokens in the admin in the Token section.
  • Switched from Jinja2 templates to Django templates. If you had your own theme, you’ll have to redo it with Django templates.

Other changes:

  • Moved a bunch of files from richard/ to the new base app in richard/base/. This cleans up the richard project directory a bit.
  • Updated to django-haystack 2.0.
  • Cleaned up the search page a bit. Added a category facet.
  • Cleaned up video listing pages.
  • Category pages now show draft videos if you’re an admin.
  • Updated to Django 1.6.
  • Updated requirements.
